Duke Community Wiki[edit]

Pratt article move[edit]

Fair enough. However, I still think the official name is just "Pratt School of Engineering." The first link you provided, about Pratt's $35 million gift, states that the school "will be named in his honor." Nowhere does it say this will include his entire name, and it is certainly plausible that the school will just include his last name. The second link you provided clearly states "Duke University School of Engineering named the Edmund T. Pratt Jr. School," which seems to make it obvious that it includes the whole name. However, I find it odd that the first sentence of the page says, "The Pratt School of Engineering traces its history back to 1851," instead of the whole name, and the page itself is titled "Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University." If anything, I would suspect that might be the official name. In the "About Pratt" section it says, "Duke’s Pratt School of engineering" and all the pages are copyrighted "Pratt School of Engineering." So, right now, I have only seen one sentence that uses the full name, and that doesn't seem as reliable since its in a timeline that someone could have easily goofed up. I guess I'm not certain, but I just thought the evidence was solid enough that the official name just included his last name. I suppose could ask a Dean or DukeEgr93 to be certain. -Bluedog423 04:21, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Oops, I can't read. Didn't catch that sentence in the first one. Sorry. -Bluedog423
  • Well, you were right and I was wrong. DukeEgr93 informed me that the official name does indeed include "Edmund T. Pratt, Jr." -Bluedog423 05:02, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Please reframe from name calling. I don't know you and you can't assume that you know everything. So please don't use the page as a way off making fun of someone else. Edit as you like just don't try and humiliate someone. I never said I own any page at this sight. Thank you and have a wonderfull day.
